BALLET BASICS (AGES 7-13)
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Monday, July 8, 2019 - Thursday, July 18, 2019
Santiago Canyon College, G-213
Dancers at this age are able to go through combinations at the barre, followed by stretching, exercises in centre, and across the floor. Dancers will be able to experiment with improvisation to develop musicality and the ability to dance according to the music. Each week will be centered around a classic ballet. This allows dancers to associate storytelling with dance and exposes them to classical compositions.
Have your dancer wear socks or ballet shoes. Dancers are encouraged to wear clothing that allows them to move their bodies freely and makes them feel comfortable:
Yoga Pants and a T-shirt
Dance clothes can be found on Amazon; ballet shoes for $10-15, Leotards from $10-25, and tights from $10-15; or google your local dance store to support local businesses!
